About this book

From the wader-thronged Dee Estuary to the seabird attractions of Anglesey, from mountains and moors to song-filled woodland, the counties of Clwyd and Gwynedd have lots to offer visiting birdwatchers.

After its launch in 2007 the original edition of Best Birdwatching Sites: North Wales quickly established a reputation for delivering trustworthy information about key birding locales in a very reader-friendly format. Alan Davies was ably assisted by Owen Roberts, co-author of the Birds of Pembrokeshire and between them they covered 58 major sites, plus a cluster of smaller sites surrounding Wrexham.

As stock of the original volume began to run down, author Alan Davies and his partner Ruth Miller took the opportunity to revisit all the sites to ensure the new version was as accurate and up-to-date as possible. All the 58 major sites covered in the 2007 book reappear in revised form, as do the 17 minor sites clustered around Wrexham. Where necessary site maps have been updated.

As a majority of active birders now use satellite navigation systems, the new book contains postcodes and GPS co-ordinates for all sites. Also included is a list of useful contacts, a glossary, Welsh pronunciation guide, a list of bird names in English and Welsh, and a bird list for North Wales.
